Are annual furnace tune-ups necessary?

furnace-repair-greensboroAs the colder temperatures of fall approach, one thing is certain: you’ll soon be using your furnace on a regular basis. Perhaps the thought has slipped your mind, but now you realize it’s time to schedule a furnace tune-up. But then you think to yourself, “Are furnace tune-ups really all that necessary?”

So, Are Furnace Tune-Ups Necessary?

Put simply; YES, an annual tune-up is necessary. After all, your furnace is one of the most expensive appliances within your home; and just like your car, it needs to be regularly cleaned and maintained. Aside from providing savings on your energy bill, an annual tune-up helps to keep your family safe. Even better, annual tune-ups ensure that your furnace stays within the manufacturer’s warranty.
